QIcon: Cannot load icon dialog-question from theme

  • Hello!

    I get this warning to the command line from my Qt4 app:
    @QIcon: Cannot load icon dialog-question from theme@

    It's caused by this snippet:
    @QMessageBox *messbox = new QMessageBox(QMessageBox::Question, "title", "text",
    QMessageBox::Yes | QMessageBox::No);@

    In spite of it, question picture is displayed. How can I get rid of this warning?

    Might sound silly but: add that icon to your current desktop theme

  • Thanks for reply, could you give me a little more info about this idea?

    You linux environment is using a them containing a set of icons (think of KDE's Oxygen) to use for e.g. print button, message dialog etc… Yours seem to missing that icon so it loads a default one. The message in itself is harmless.
